Presently Polished

New Yorkers and other cold-weather cities have a leg-up on Angelenos when it comes to sophisticated outwear. Nothing elevates and refines a look like a well-designed coat.

With the weather heating up and the AC blasting everywhere I go, however, I’m more likely to need a coat indoors than outdoors, so this vest by Vince is the perfect way to add polish to an outfit without roasting.

On the beauty front, I’m having a 90’s powder-and-lipstick moment after watching the young(er) Gwyneth Paltrow in “Perfect Murder” the other night while channel surfing. It takes a lot for me to stray from my lip-liner-and-Aquaphor approach to lip color, but – damn – lipstick sure does pack a punch.
